Ensure that you understand the expectation properly: The task or project needs specific definition along with what success looks like in the end. If you can’t define success, you’ll never meet expectations
Make sure that the progress is measurable so that you have a feedback mechanism to ensure you are on track.
Organize time: The most common reason for missing expectations is lack of time. The best way to maximize time is organizing it.
Prioritize and apply 80/20 rule: To maximize productivity, it is important to only focus on the tasks that make the maximum impact. Using the 80/20 rule (concept that 20 percent of work produces 80 percent of the results) will eliminate most of the required tasks by cutting down the time to meet each expectation.
